Taking my '01 all the way to the valve train and need a BUNCH of parts. Who do you guys and gals GO TO for your parts? Would you believe I just now found out Chicago is CLOSED? Wow, time sure flies!

Also, anybody know where I can get a steering damper? Or maybe a kit to rebuild the one I have? I'm not at all sure I can get the bolt out though - had to drill it out of the fork brace - it is welded into the damper!

Thanks in advance for any advice on any of the above!

Nobody does a standard discount all the time like Chicago did (and that was a while ago). Bob's and Hermy's do seasonal 20%. When all else fails I just use Max BMW as they usually have free shipping if you buy enough. Some times A & S out west has a sale too.

When you say all the way to the valve train do you mean removing the head or are you just doing valve adjustment?

Going down to the cam chest to replace the tensioning sliders. Valves are fine. I sure hope I can get this beast back together - I got pulled off during disassembly for a month and now have no idea about order of reassembly! Such a complex unit! Any idea about a replacement or rebuild kit for the steering damper?

Just curious as to why you are replacing the sliders?
